Movie Info

Cesar's Last Fast is a multi-platform feature documentary film about the private sacrifice and spiritual conviction behind Cesar Chavez's struggle for the humane treatment of America's farm workers, and the impact Chavez's legacy has on today's generation of organizers fighting for farm worker rights. The film is built around powerful, never-before-seen footage of Chavez's 1988 "Fast for Life," a 36-day act of penance for not having done enough to stop growers from spraying pesticides on farm workers. The story of this water-only fast is the film's dramatic arc into which the filmmakers interweave the historic events that defined the life mission of America's most inspiring Latino leader and the struggles confronting today's farm workers.

Top Critic

An inspiring testimony to one of this nation's heroes.

Full Review… | April 18, 2014

More than this though, the documentary's structure, minimal sense of conflict, and practically zero surprises that are responsible for the viewer's wan engagement.
